“We had been through four other leadership interventions. So when InitiativeOne came in, I had no expectations. But we began seeing results after the very first day – day one! You really can’t put a dollar value on it. It has changed the culture of the whole clinic and has had a very positive impact on patient care.”

Healthcare Leadership


In today’s medical systems, it is necessary to provide a dynamic and responsive health care system with a workforce that can cope with frequent organizational changes. To achieve this, they must have clinicians who can demonstrate leadership skills and act as role models at all levels of health care provision. An important characteristic of a good leader is the ability to explore personal and team motives/beliefs in accomplishing a change or perceived vision of success. As part of this process true leadership requires the ability to critically appraise the team process and outcomes on the path to achieving a shared goal. Leadership requires constant fine tuning of self as well as reflection on the individual needs and characteristics of the team. Clinicians should have an insight into leadership styles and responsibilities in order to gain a deeper understanding of the attributes required of being, or supporting, ‘leaders’ within the organization.
